A recent study has revealed that 97% of climate scientists agree human activity is perpetuating climate change, putting our planet and future generations at risk. We know it’s happening, we know why, but what are we doing to empower our communities and contribute to a cleaner future?
Daily Acts Matter! Rising Up For Climate Action is the first annual Sonoma County community educational and music event dedicated to raising climate awareness. Taking place on September 8th, 2019 at the SOMO Village Event Center in Rohnert Park, CA, this festival is hosted by Daily Acts, a sustainable non-profit that inspires transformative action that creates connected, equitable, and climate-resilient communities. The intention for this event is to elevate awareness of positive, solution-oriented actions we can all take to address the global climate crisis and to create change in our local communities.
This one of a kind event will feature community support from local musicians, organizations, governmental and non-government agencies, eco-minded food, beverage, and merchandise vendors, performance artists and healers; all coming together to promote positive climate action. Visit our Climate Action Hub where you can get involved, get educated, and take action on a number of issues affecting our global community. Decompress with a local craft beer, cider and wine bar and enjoy delicious food court offerings. Join the kids in the designated art area designed to be educational, creative and fun for all ages! Stop by the silent auction and check out the unforgettable gifts and services that will be up for grabs with all proceeds benefiting Daily Acts’ climate education and action programs.
This family-friendly event will showcase incredible, local entertainment with music by: Rupa and the April Fishes, The Coffis Brothers, The Highway Poets, Dusty Green Bones Band and The Real Sarahs.

A more resilient future is attainable, but we must act now. Take heart, for anything is possible when we unleash the power of community!
